Overview of Prevention Initiatives

Student Signs Bystander Pledge“The results from the AAU Campus Climate Survey were really sobering.  While the data suggested that there was a lot of great prevention work being done, it wasn’t changing behavior quickly enough. It’s become very clear that we need to expand on those efforts.” - Katie Pope, Associate Vice Chancellor of Civil Rights and Title IX

In January of 2020 the Title IX Office opened Pitt’s first office solely dedicated to preventing all forms of sexual misconduct on campus.  The new prevention office works to promote ongoing conversations with faculty, staff and students around issues of consent, bystander intervention, harassment and healthy relationships with the goal of eradicating sexual misconduct.  We encourage all members of campus to be involved with these initiatives.
